I suggest that

future< tuple< T1, T2, T3 > > f_and( f1 && f2 && f3);
future< variant< T1, T2, T3 > > f_or( f1 || f2 || f3);

behave like ordinary futures f1, f2, f3.
That means the the current thread is blocked in future< T >::get() not
in the ctor.

What happens in exceptional cases?
I would prefer that I get the ability to check which future (f1, f2, f3)
failed and which exception was thrown.
